Julian (emperor)

Julian (Latin: Flavius Claudius Julianus; Greek: Ἰουλιανός Iulianos; 331 – 26 June 363) was Roman emperor from 361 to 363, as well as a notable philosopher and author in Greek. His rejection of Christianity, and his promotion of Neoplatonic Hellenism in its place, caused him to be remembered as Julian the Apostate in Christian tradition.
